Simplified version of my PHP test runner

Inked by Fran Dieguez

In my course of getting continuous testing in practice I have improved my test runner by using less dependencies.

#!/bin/bash
if ! which inotifywait > /dev/null; then
    echo "You must install the inotify-tools package to use this script";

    exit 1;
fi

while true; do
    inotifywait -r -e modify src/ tests/ --excludei "(tpl|js|css|jpg|png|yml|yaml)$" &&
    clear &&
    ant phpunit;
done

Previously I have implemented this by using Ruby and its Watchr gem, but now this script only relies on inotifywait binary available in major distributions.

As usual this script helps you to track your code for changes and if changed it will automatically run a bunch of actions.
